Busy Month Ahead

This month is packed full of exciting Kingdom activity, there's something for everyone to get involved in.

First and most important is our Annual General Meeting.  This Thursday, Feb. 9th we will meet together at 7:00 pm.  We'll go through reports and other church business, but we also ask that people come ready to seek the Lord's will for our church as we ask, together, for vision for our congregation.  We are asking that, if you are able, you would fast and pray for the day.  We will have a lunch together after the meeting to break the fast and give thanks to God for his goodness and faithfulness to answer us as we earnestly seek him.

The other big event this month is Life Direction Week.  The weekend is packed full of teaching, workshops, worship and fellowship time.  We have Mark Griffin coming as our keynote speaker this year.  He is a missionary planting churches in Germany.  We are very excited to hear some wisdom and insight into reaching people with the Gospel.  Click on the picture (above) to go the the Facebook page for more details on the weekend or contact Joey Cook (info on the left).  Mark will be speaking at Grace on Sunday, Feb. 19th so if you are unable to come to the weekend, you'll at least get to hear him speak if you come to church.

Also, two new bible studies will be starting this month.  Sharon Barnes will be teaching through Beth Moore's study called, "Living Beyond Yourself".  It is a DVD based study with a work book component.  Starting February 17th (Fridays) at 9:30-11:30am at Harvest House North Sydney.  And a second night starting on February 21st (Tuesdays) at 7:00-9:00pm at Grace Fellowship.  Please Contact Sharon at 736-9499 for more info or click the banner below to see a sample of the study.

This is also a sending and returning month.  Dave MacIntyre has returned from his YWAM New Zealand DTS and we will be hearing a report from him.  We'll also be sending off another young man, Kristian Whyte on a similar adventure with Jesus as he leaves for YWAM Australia DTS.  We will have prayer and commissioning for him this coming Sunday.  Also, two more of our young men, Erik Kimbley and Kyle MacLeod will be going a short term mission over March break, helping load and unload cargo planes taking supplies into Haiti.  And on February 26th, we will commission the Nicaragua Dental Team who leave in early March.  

On February 10th at 7:30, Chalk Dust will be hosting a Family Ceilidh at Harvest House North Sydney.
And on February 21st we will have another Cape Breton Screaming Eagles Chapel.

I hope you'll get involved in one or more of the exciting opportunities this month to see the Kingdom of Heaven spread in Cape Breton.

Be Blessed.
